About Crowdmark Inc.
Crowdmark is an education technology company based in Toronto. Crowdmark’s ultra-scalable assessment platform and badged labor market enables evaluating and certifying learning on a massive scale. The global education explosion lacks scalable methods to certify achievement. Evaluating student work currently involves paging through piles of paper or using ineffective multiple-choice exams. Crowdmark streamlines document assessment and makes it easy for instructors to rapidly mark the work of their own students, or to assemble and manage teams of qualified graders for large classes with hundreds or thousands of students.
